want unique data

Hi All,

I have a question again, In the code below in want to display data that is unique, there are many directories in which i am going and parsing a .su file and getting a string out, if i do ls $i | grep .su | $AWK -F"_" '{print $1} | uniq inside the for loop it will not work.

What do i do?





SHARE_ENTITY_PATH=`$FIND $STREAM_PATH . -depth -name ShareableEntities`

ls $i | grep .su |  $AWK -F"_" '{print $1}'
